Winner of $623000 he raced twice in the Wellington Cup and won it in 2005, raced in the Brisbane Melbourne Cups, ran second in the Sydney Cup, and finished second and third in Auckland Cups. He had 7 two mile starts and was crowned NZ Champion Stayer 2005.

Every time Donna goes to Karaka to by a horse Ashley is always the first to ask what she has available. Zabeat cost $20000.
